One of the more welcomed features of the newly released Nintendo Channel is the ability to download DS games from the Wii straight to the Nintendo DS. While this function is appreciated, those who have sharing settings disabled will unfortunately miss out on downloadable DS content. For some strange reason, if you do not allow Nintendo to access your Wii data, DS Downloads will not be available on the channel. It's questionable as to why Nintendo would do this, considering no information seems to be collected by Nintendo when downloading DS data. On Is data so important to Nintendo that they must bribe Wii owners for data in exchange for DS downloads?
